The CBC Welcomes the Second Class of CBC Scholars
The Chicago Biomedical Consortium is pleased to announce the second class of CBC Scholars. Each CBC university selected three outstanding third or fourth year graduate students in a biomedical discipline to participate in the Scholars program. Each member of the Scholars Class of 2011 will receive a grant of $5,000 per year for up to two years. This award is to be used for academically-related purposes, such as travel to conferences or participation in workshops.
